the more one pays attention to details, the more delightful this film is
We watched it tonight for the second time. One notices then some details one missed the first time. They all fit together without any gaps one sees so often in movies, the logic is precise; one sees later reasons for small events which took place earlier. Like the first person who commented on this film, I shall not divulge any details of the ingenious plot. There are four wonderful actors, not just two as in a typical boy + girl story. Not only Maciej Stuhr and Agnieszka Krukowna but also Janusz Gajos as the philosophizing policeman and Adam Ferency as the main crook are extraordinary. There are also interesting contrasts in their interpretations; Krukowna has a rich variety of facial expressions while Stuhr junior (not to be confused with his father & an outstanding actor Jerzy Stuhr) has a poker face with a slight smile as fits his brain of the enterprise role. The dialogs are a pleasure for the viewer. Aleks has been beaten by thugs, he knows who they are, but letting the police to pursue them would damage his plans. The policeman figures this out and tells Aleks: I run today into these two thugs, you know, those you do not remember who they are.
